While it's worse for engaging in the many cliches of the stale period romances of the '80s and '90s, the power of the film stems from the strength of its feminine perspective and its central metaphors: the piano as Ada's voice, the decimation and "taming" of the jungle as puritanical and patriarchal suppression, etc. It's a knotted framework of meaning let down by an underdeveloped love story between Baines and Ada. Formally, it has aged poorly, but its point-of-view is far ahead of its time.

Piano mostly succeeds in its casting, characters and in its treatment of themes through these characters. The elegant cinematography heightens its appeal.

Very weird and dark, but yet interesting story that makes you somewhat intrigued. I agree on Oscar-winning performances from the two lead actresses. *Good

The Piano looks wonderful, with expressive colors, sharp contrasts and amazing deep-field shots. And the story starts out interesting enough, so much so that I thought little could ruin this film. Boy, was I wrong; the story devolving into pure nonsense did exactly that. Why exactly does Ada fall in love with a guy who sexually assaults her? And why do these lovebirds have no visible chemistry whatsoever? Are we supposed to be happy now that they're together? Incredible potential, sadly wasted.

A simple movie, a little bit over the top, I can see why it was so successful at award shows and with critics, but it doesn't have the unpredictable quirkiness of Campion's prior work. The soundtrack doesn't match the period, which should annoy the musically inclined. Very good cast is one of the strong points.

Handsomely shot, solidly acted (except for Harvey Keitel, whose accent is borderline laughable), and well directed...but the script (which somehow won an Oscar) barely holds together on any level.

Extremely profound, poetic, Campion's masterpiece is simply a beautiful tragedy of woman's emancipation, the people who understood, and tried to help Ada. I would've preferred Ada drowning in the end, not having to bear the troubles of her century, yet the film ends with a sweet tone that is memorable.
